Aldeburgh Strings

The Aldeburgh Strings ensemble is a product of Aldeburgh Music’s Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme which was founded over forty years ago by Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears, in order to provide high-level performance training for the world’s best emerging professional musicians. This legacy still lives on today in the shape of residential courses and masterclasses which take place throughout the year in the beautiful surroundings of the Suffolk coast where Britten lived and worked. Young artists benefit from an exceptional campus of performance spaces and studios which has grown around the world-famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall, home of the Aldeburgh Festival. The Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme hosts some of the world’s finest performers and teachers who lead, and often participate in intensive projects which mostly culminate in high-profile performances and recordings.

Since its inception in 2010, Aldeburgh Strings has met for intensive residential courses during which it has explored core chamber repertoire alongside leading artists and tutors. These tutors are drawn from some of the world’s finest orchestras—such as the Berlin Philhamonic, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Mahler, Philharmonia and Scottish Chamber Orchestra—and direct the ensemble sections from within, in an inspiring dual role of mentor and performer. As well as Britten’s music, the ensemble has performed repertoire by Tchaikovsky, Strauss, Shostakovich, Elgar, Vaughan Williams and Bartók .
